ESPN FC: Is the title race all over?

Luis Suarez insists "nothing is going to happen" to him this summer because he is happy in Liverpool and so is his family.

The striker, who signed a new contract at Anfield in December, is still being heavily linked with a move to Champions League finalists Real Madrid before the transfer window reopens.

Suarez, the recently crowned PFA Player of the Year, was close to a move to Madrid last summer and Arsenal made a £40,000,001 bid - which they hoped would activate a getout clause - to buy him.

Suarez and his representatives agitated for a transfer then but Liverpool stood firm and their success in gaining Champions League qualification and getting tantalisingly close to fulfilling his "dream" of winning the title this season has changed the picture.

When Canal 10, a television station in his native Uruguay, asked him whether they should be contacting him in England or Spain next season, Suarez said: "I'm very happy here and my family is happy here.

"Don't worry nothing is going to happen to me. If we could win the Premier League and bring the trophy home it would be incredible, a dream come true."

Following a home defeat to Chelsea on Sunday, Liverpool's title ambitions rely on Manchester City dropping points. Manuel Pellegrini's men face the Merseyside club's city rivals Everton on Saturday - with Roberto Martinez vowing not to do anyone any favours in the title race.

"We are hoping City loses some points but in the Premier League you never know, anything is possible," Suarez said. "Now we have to win the next two games and it is not going to be easy."

On the Chelsea defeat, he added: "I'm still upset, it was so frustrating, we couldn't find spaces and we made a mistake and it was hard to deal with. We knew the game was going to be hard and tight but it was frustrating when they were using up time.

"I was upset because of our mistake; we all got nervous and lost control. It was impossible to find spaces to get in."
